The Smiling Animals in the Dreamtime project aimed to:
- Improve animal welfare in indigenous communities
- Deliver animal welfare education to primary aged school children in a trusted learning environment
- Provide teachers in remote community schools with resources, lesson plans and notes to teach students in the classroom about animal welfare.
The Teacher Resource Pack has also been made available online on the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry website to enable all teachers wishing to provide students with a better understanding of the principles of animal welfare in six simple lessons.
The primary aim of the project to provide teachers in remote community schools with the resources to teach students in the classroom about animal welfare, through the provision of lesson plans, teacher aides, notes and activities has been achieved. By implementing the program schools will meet the goalof the project which is to improve animal welfare in indigenous communities through teaching animal welfare education in a trusted learning environment.
